Mother’s Day is almost here. I’ve already got most of the weekend’s festivities planned. A baseball game with my boys. An outdoor workout with friends/family. Brunch and festivities at a local farm. Maybe some flower shopping or digging in the garden.
I’m not big on gifts for Mother’s Day. For me, it’ about spending time with my kids. Of course, I do have some memorable artwork to commemorate the day.
This piece (below), from Biz, was actually from Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. He was asked who his hero was.
And then my heart melted.
It’s the gifts with meaning that last in our memories, whether they are simple handmade pieces of artwork or sparkling jewelry.
The sparkles can be nice too, of course.
I’ve talked about being an affiliate of ALEX AND ANI’s in a past post. I love ALEX AND ANI because their jewelry is meaningful. The charm bangles that I wear are symbolic and give me strength. Each ALEX AND ANI bangle is said to be infused with positive energy. They also give back through their Charmed By Charity events and Charity By Design products.
If you are shopping for a mother in your life or looking to splurge on something for yourself (hello fellow single mamas!), take a look at the ALEX AND ANI Mother’s Day gift guide.
(And if you’re interested in winning a gift card to purchase something from ALEX AND ANI, there’s a giveaway at the bottom of this post!)
The Mom Charm Bangle, not surprisingly, symbolizes generosity, heroism and love.
